    Looking for help on what everyone is paying their Park Maintenance Staff hourly. Going through some rehiring and want to advocate for my park maintenance staff as they are a vital piece to keeping our parks looking great.

    Also, what is everyone paying their seasonal staff these days?

    Job descriptions, pay scales, anything you have please send my way! kwilladsen@hiawatha-iowa.com

    Thank you!!
